한우 Hanwoo with 2002 La Fleur de Boüard Lalande de Pomerol

2002 La Fleur de Boüard Lalande de Pomerol with Hanwoo.

2002 라낭드 드 뽀므롤 프랑스와인 짝맞다 한우

I paired the wine with Hanwoo (한우), Korean native cattle beef. Hanwoo is a more marbled beef than most western cuts. It’s smooth, softer and slightly more fatty.  I’m becoming more convinced that merlot based Bordeaux are the best match for Hanwoo.

Recipe

  • 300gm of Hanwoo (sliced into 3cm by 3cm cuts)
  • One baguette
  • Some Lemon olive oil
  • 6 mini tomatoes.
  • 5 lettuce leaves
  1. Slice Hanwoo then lightly grill in a frypan.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over sliced baguettes.
  3. Pour Hanwoo over bread.
  4. Serve with tomatoes and lettuce.
  5. Season with ground black pepper over the tomatoes and Hanwoo.

Cooking Time: 10min. Perfect TV dinner.

Tasting Notes

Earthy, aromatic bouquet of wet leaves, raspberries and an arresting earthy texture. The palate follows through with more grip and minerality. Initially withdrawn, the mid palate was underwhelming and failed to integrate with other elements. After three hours of breathing the wine opening up, knitting together with ripe fruit and subtle smoke. But it needed more time. Re-tasting 24 hours later, the mid palate architecture married the various elements together. Gravely with just the right amount of polish. A velvety caressing finish matured through ten years of bottle aging.  85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cab Franc. (85% 메를로, 10% 카 베르네 소비뇽, 5% 까베르네프랑) The wine spends 18-20 months in new oak and is not subject to fining or filtering.
